Objectives To determine the technical success rates of MR elastography (MRE) according to established gradient-recalled echo (GRE) and spin-echo echo-planar imaging (SE-EPI) sequences and to compare liver stiffness (LS) values between the sequences during expiratory and inspiratory phases in patients with chronic liver disease or liver cirrhosis.

Objective:To evaluate the agreement of three MRE sequences in patients undergoing liver MRI for clinical care.Methods:A cross-sectional retrospective study was performed with 223 patients referred for liver MRI, including 12 patients with liver iron overload. Data obtained with Spin-Echo (SE) and Gradient-Echo (GRE) MRE sequences were compared. Multiple linear regression adjusted for the presence of liver fat was also performed to assess the correlation between fat infiltration and stiffness mea...

Abstract Liver fibrosis and in particular cirrhosis are the major causes of morbidity and mortality of patients with chronic liver disease. Their prevention or reversal have become major endpoints in clinical trials with novel liver specific drugs. Remarkable progress has been made with therapies that efficiently address the cause of the underlying liver disease, as in chronic hepatitis B and C. Highly effective antiviral therapy can prevent progression or even induce reversal in the majority of...

US and MR elastographic techniques have developed into accurate methods for quantitative, noninvasive diagnosis of liver fibrosis in a wide range of etiologies; however, interpretation of results should take into account potential confounding factors, pitfalls, and technical limitations.

The authors of this study evaluated the performance of a gradient-recalled-echo (GRE) MR elastography pulse sequence at 3.0 T and demonstrated that the technical failure rate was substantially higher than that at 1.5 T, indicating the critical importance of using an alternative pulse sequence such as spinecho echo-planar imaging or fractional GRE pulse sequences.

Two-dimensional (2D) gradient-recalled echo and 2D spin-echo (SE) echoplanar imaging (EPI) MR elastography stiffness data are strongly correlated, and 2D SE-EPI MR elastography allows measurement of stiffness across larger areas of the liver (including deeper portions) with fewer motion artifacts.
